The route of this trek is 70% shadowed with dense forest, a big lake at the base and few water sources on the way and many water tanks on the top makes it a pleasant trek & also famous for Human pinnacles.
Heart-Shaped Lake, Bastions, Cisterns, Temples and above all Man-Shaped Pinnacle
This fort has not got very historical importance but looking at the well-dug cisterns, the fort can be said to be belonging to Bhoj-period. But no such evidence are available. What is known about this fort is that Kohoj was under Portuguese colonies in the 16th century. They fortified it and later Peshwas conquered this fort in 1737.
The moderate hike to the top is a fresh experience. The 2.5 to 3 hours one-way hike to Kohoj fort has all ingredients for a pleasant small eco-adventure landscape reflecting in small lakes, hills, plateaus, misty atmosphere, flora and fauna (wild and domestic), the two very peculiarly shaped pinnacles are the guiding lighthouse to the fort of Kohoj. The view from the top is mind blowing.
